The aims of this research were to determine the best formula of jelly drinks with orange concentrate and determine the nutritional properties and evaluate the sensory of this jelly drinks. During jelly drinks production using gelling agent, the best results were obtained by using 82.22% Water, 0.096% Sodium benzoate, 15.0% Sugar, 0.025% Salt (NaCl), 0.0225% Jelly powder, 0.18% Potassium citrate, 0.20% Citric acid, 2% Orange Concentrate, 0.019% Color, and 0.24% Flavor.Overall analysis shows that orange jelly concentrate which are produced including its color, flavor, structure, is really good and it’s dissolved smoothly in the mouth, increase sweet test and delight the sensory panelist.
